. >> thank you, jim. in a rare interview this morning, former president george w. bush talked about the enormity of the situation currently going on at the white house. as the president weighs whether to take military action in syria. >> the president's got a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. putting our military into harm's way is the toughest decision a president will make. >> here to give us insight into that difficult decision is the former u.s. ambassador to morocco and former middle east adviser mark ginsburg. what i want to talk to you about is the careful line administrations have to tow when dealing with whether or not it's a declaration or war or just military action. we've seen several examples in the recent past including the 1983 invasion of grenada, the bombing of libya in 1986, invasion of panama in '98, et cetera. i think it's important for our viewers to really understand the best way to describe in the clearest sense the difference between using military force and a declaration of war. >>
